Fall in Mountain Area of Norway

Hi there, long time no sea. Been away from this forum quite a long time. But I will show you a beautiful film I made from 6 days hike in the mountain area of Norway.

This film could have been made for the uwol-challenge, but I was too late and the train had left the station before I could count in. So I thought that it would be nice to showcase it here instead!
The film is done with a DSLR - Canon 5DMk3 and a variety of lenses from Samyang 14mm f2.8, Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L II USM and Canon 70-200mm f2.8 L II USM.

I also used a timelapse dolly, Dynamic Perception stage zero dolly and a motorized Kessler Pocket Dolly for real time video, which I made a DIY motorized system for.
Weather was rapidly changing from snow, rain, storm to sun and blue sky. A difficult task to produce good footage, but I did my best and the result is quite usable IMHO!
I took nearly 10.000 still pictures for timelapse sequences and a total of nearly 300 GB of data (images + footage).

As this area is very remote with no electricity and my home was a tent, there is quite a challenge to maintain all the stuff required for this task; batteries, memory cards etc. Also the temperature at night was well below freezing point, which lead to that batteries lasted shorter than what I was used to!

To avoid flicker in the timelapse sequences, I always lock down the camera. This means that I put everything in manual mode, and lock the shutter by using the twist lense technique. This way every exposure is nearly equal but the problem is to set the right exposure before dawn and coming out on the right side after sunrise without blowing out all highlights!

The real time sequences using a motorized dolly is very nice. I use a speed controller to adjust speed and direction and the motor drives very well without any noticeable speed change, which is very difficult to archieve by hand. This way I got some very interesting footage of motion instead of the regular static nature scenery shots.

Ok hope you enjoy the film and donīt forget to look at it in full screen mode at the Vimeo site:

Re: Fall in Mountain Area of Norway

Thanks for sharing Per,
I too am playing more & more with time lapse shots. I have recently bought a Panasonic gh4 & the really neat thing about it, is that you can do all the time lapse stuff in camera.
Again,
Thanks, it was lovely to watch!

Hei, Per Johan! Excellent work- thanks for posting it here. I have been expecting to see a video like this ever since I heard you got the Stage Zero. I think you have really mastered the technique. Congratulations!
